A while back I saw a thread where somebody made a rub for chicken using lemonade powder so I got to thinking and putting stuff together. Well, what I came up with is a concoction that is excellent on wings. It does ok for whole chicken, but it really shines on the wings.
It's spicy, without burning your lips off, with a good balance of salt and sweet. As usual, you can add more pepper if you want it hotter but we like it just like it is.
I smoked 2 dozen wings and we ate every one without saucing.
Here it is if you want to give it a try:
2 Tbs. Salt
¼ cup Paprika
2 Tbs. Black Pepper
2 Tbs. Lemonade Mix (Country Time)
1 tsp. Rosemary
¼ tsp. Thyme
1 tsp. Cayenne Pepper
1 tsp. Onion Powder
1 tsp. Garlic Powder
½ tsp. Ground Cinnamon
1 tsp. Ground Cumin
½ tsp. Ground Nutmeg
2 Tbs. Sugar
1 tsp. Sage
1 Tbs. Chili Powder
2 Tbs. Hidden Valley Ranch Seasoning & Salad Dressing Mix
2 tsp. Accent
1 tsp. Dry Mustard
Whisk everything together and let sit overnight in a sealed container if you can. It's better the next day when the flavors have a chance to blend.
Makes enough for 2 dozen wings or two whole birds.
